    Lawyers agree

    Answered . A non-traffic violation usually does not result in any points. However, it could effect your criminal record, for it is what I believe to be a summary offense.

    I would contact a criminal defense attorney immediately.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . The circumstances you describe are quite unusual.

    Generally, a Non-Traffic Disorderly Conduct Citation is issued at the time of the detention. There is nothing you described which would warrant a more serious criminal charge or a charge for misdemeanor D.C.

    Moreover, there is no need for a police officer to obtain your social security number. To check for warrants, etc., the only thing that is necessary is a name and date of birth.

    Although there will be no points, if you gave someone your social security number in addition to the information on your licenses, there may be more serious issues.

    Was the officer in uniform? Was this a marked patrol car?

    Consult with an attorney ASAP.

    Answered . Disorderly conduct is a non-traffic summary offense which carries no points or driver license penalty. It should not affect your auto insurance, either. However, there will be a record of it on the PA UJS web portal which is accessible by anyone. When you get the citation I suggest you speak to an experienced attorney about this case.
